Matthew 5:31-32. It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

Beloved,  God bless you specially at this period of Easter season in Jesus name. Glory and. honour to our loving Father in heaven who did not spare His Son, but gave Him to us to recover every lost blessings at Eden.

Romans 8:32. He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

Whatever  you have lost or whatever are dead either in your life, family or source of livelihood, by the reason of the triumphant resurrection of our Lord, you shall recover them all in Jesus name.  We give all glory to Jesus Christ our Lord, who laid His life for us in an uncommon and unusual painful and shameful sacrifice, to redeem and bless us.

Isaiah 53:3-7. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

John 15:13. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

We  give glory to God for His triumphant resurrection. He is no more in the grave. He is sitting majestically at the right hand of God in heaven now. Hallelujah.

Matthew 28:5-6. And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

Hebrews 1:3. Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

 Beloved, because, you are a very sincere serious minded believer. Easter season is not just for celebration, eating and winning, going for picnic.
It is a time  for  sober reflection, meditating on the  pains and sufferings  of our Lord Jesus Christ and resolving to ensure that His shameful and painful death shall not be in vain for you, but shall help you to live with Him in eternity.
God shall do this and more for you, because of the death and resurrection of our glorious and gracious Redeemer in Jesus name.
One way of doing this, is to attach so much importance to the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ on God’s standard on marriage. See it.

Matthew 5:31-32. It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

Why is this very important? Because His Father established  marriage institution and from the outset, He set standard for marriage ordinance.

Psalms 68:6. God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.

Genesis 2:18. And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

Genesis 2:21-24. And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Dearly beloved,  when God established marriage institution, He immediately  established  the pattern it shall take till the end of time.  It was. monogamy. One male and one female. It was not polygamy,  one male and two or three females. It was  not one female or two or three females. It was also for a lifetime.
There was no room for divorce and remarriage.  This was what Jesus our Lord referred, the Jews to, when they asked Him, about God’s standard on marriage. See it.

Mark 10:6-9. But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

Beloved, God the Father hates divorce, so He did not grant permission for it , to  obedient believers like you, who is desirous to live with Him eternally.

Mal 2:14Mal 2:16. Yet ye say, Wherefore?  Because the Lord hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant. And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit.  And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth.  For the Lord, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the Lord of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.

Only hardened hearted hell bound empty professor of Christianity desires, God’s permissive will in marriage.  They received it then, with untold hardship and pains. See it.

Deuteronomy 24:1. When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.

Psalms 106:15. And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.

You, because of your appreciation of all that our Lord did for you on the cross, must abide by His teachings, so that, you can be part of the dawning rapture and live with Him in eternity. This shall be your portion in Jesus name. See what you are to do.

Ephesians 5:22-25. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Eph 5:28Eph 5:31. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

Ephesians 5:33. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

You must never ever entertain divorcing your spouse. However, should your life, be threatened in the marriage, see what you can do. You can relocate and be living separately, but then you can not remarry.

1Co 7:101Co 7:14. And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband: But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife. But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away. And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.

Beloved, if you remarry while your spouse is alive, you have committed adultery. The adulterous according to God’s words shall be damned. You shall not be damned in Jesus name.

Rom 7:2Rom 7:3. For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.

Galatians 5:19-21. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

The only ground for which you can remarry is when your spouse is dead. This shall never be your portion in Jesus name. But should in case this had happened. You can only marry a Christian.

1 Corinthians 7:39. The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord.

May the Lord help you to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.
Dearly beloved, Jesus Christ, our triumphant resurrected Lord is the truth personified who knows the truth, through and through.

John 14:6. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

In addition, He was the prophesied prophet, whose word must be obeyed implicitly.

Deuteronomy 18:18-19. I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him..

Acts 3:20-23.  And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.

Acts 7:37: ¶This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear.

Also, according to the affirmation from glory by His Father  on the mount of transfiguration,, when Moses and Elias were talking to Him, about His passion, His words overrule and supersede  whatever Moses wrote in the books of Genesis to Deuteronomy. His words overrule and supersede every words written by all the prophets put together from the book of Joshua to Malachi. See it.

Matthew 17:1-5. And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

So every sincere heaven focused believer, who has taken cognisance of all of the above, must know that Jesus’s word on God’s standard on marriage should be final. I am persuaded of you, that , you are a sincere believer. See what your resurrected Lord said.

Matthew 5:31-32. It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

Dearly beloved, see what Jesus referred to, the writing of Moses in the Old Testament.

Deuteronomy 24:1. When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.

Jesus Christ the word personified that has finality on the Bible said, it was not so, from the beginning, so the only ground for divorce is fornication.

Mat 19:1Mat 19:9 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these sayings, he departed from Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judaea beyond Jordan; And great multitudes followed him; and he healed them there. The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause? And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.  And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

However, as a wise and sincere heaven focused believer, you need to understand the world of difference between fornication and adultery.
1. Fornication is  : consensual (see consensual) sexual intercourse between two persons not married.  That is the immoral acts between unmarried opposite sex.
2. Adultery: : voluntary sexual intercourse between a married man and someone other than his wife or between a married woman and someone other than her husband;  this is immoral acts between married opposite sex.
Dearly beloved , by your understanding of the two definitions above, now join it with what Jesus said and you will come to understand, that, their no ground for divorce at all. See it yourself

Matthew 5:31-32. It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

This is because a married person can not commit fornication. Married people commits adultery.
The Bible provides you with an instance of what Jesus our Lord said. Mary His mother was espoused to Joseph, her future husband. Before marriage, Mary was found with pregnancy. To be espoused means to be engaged or have somebody as your fiancé, for which you are planning to marry at a particular time.

Matthew 1:18-19. Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.

Joseph wanted to do it secretly because should it come to the knowledge of the public Mary would be stoned. This was  because in Israel, a lady  or damsel  must never be disvirgined , until after marriage. If it happened, that lady or damsel shall be stoned to death. See it.

Deuteronomy 22:20-21. But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father’s house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father’s house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you.

But then, Mary’s pregnancy was through the blessed Holy Spirit. That was why, the marriage was conducted, other wise Mary would have been stoned to death.

Matthew 1:20-21. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.

So from this revelation, you can understand that the only time any man and woman can be separated, is when they are engaged or still regard one another as fiancé. When either of them discover foul play.
That marriage plan can be stopped and separated. But after they have been joined together in the court or church and they are known as married couples. They can not be separated again, except by death. Which shall never be your portion in Jesus name. By now, you have full understanding of what He said below. See it. It connotes no ground for divorce and remarriage.

Matthew 5:31-32. It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

See the same affirmed by other gospel evangelists.

Matthew 19:9. And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

Mark 10:12. And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.

Luke 16:18. Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery. Remember, before this time Jesus taught that He had come to fulfil  all the. scriptures in the Old Testament and He will never ever contradict what His Father in heaven had previously said.

Matthew 5:17-18. Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

See what His Father commanded  in the Old Testament. These are His unchanging teachings on marriage, that every sincere believer, for which you are one must believe and obey. Receive His grace to do so in Jesus name.

Mal 2:14Mal 2:16. Yet ye say, Wherefore?  Because the Lord hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant. And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit.  And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth.  For the Lord, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the Lord of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.

2 Corinthians 9:8. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

JESUS’ UNCHANGING TEACHINGS ON GOD’S STANDARD ON MARRIAGE TO SINCERE HEAVEN FOCUSED BELIEVERS. YOU MUST JOIN THEM.
Friend,  glory to God for the celebration of this Easter season. Jesus our Lord in deed died and rose again. He died for you not die again and be separated eternally from God. You shall not be separated from God eternally in Jesus name. Don’t allow His painful and shameful vicarious sacrifice to be in vain on you. It shall not be in Jesus name.

Revelation 21:8. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

But then one great device of satan through which many, excluding you, shall die and be separated from God eternally and also be hindered  from the imminent or dawning rapture, is failure to meet with God’s standard of marriage. See it.

Matthew 5:31-32. It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

Anyone and everyone who divorces his or her spouse and marry another one, while the spouse is alive has committed adultery and shall be sent to hell not heaven. Such a believer shall not be part of the rapture. Monogamy is the standard of God in marriage not polygamy. There is nothing like divorce and remarriage.  Always remember this, don’t ever forget.

Mark 10:11-12. And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her. And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.

Luke 16:18. Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.

Romans 7:2-3. For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10. Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

Unfortunately, many so called believers because of the deception of the devil and the state of their own heart too, not wanting the truth of God’s unchanging word, and not desiring to abide in the revealed will of God in marriage, have been misled, by false prophets and teachers. They have rejected the wholesome truth and turned to fables.  They will not be excused for been misled, they shall be damned. You shall not be damned. So receive the revealed will of God on His standard on marriage, to avoid damnation. See how the scriptures described them.

2 Thessalonians 2:10-12. And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

1 Timothy 4:1-2. Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

2 Timothy 3:1-5. This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

2 Timothy 4:1-4. I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Our Lord Jesus Christ and the blessed Holy Spirit affirmed that anyone and everyone who rejects the unchanging God’s word shall be judged and damned by the word of God, they rejected. See what they both said.

John 12:46-48. I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

Revelation 22:18-19. For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Friend, if you must be part of the dawning rapture and live with God eternally, Jesus said, you must keep all His words, which includes obeying God’s standard in marriage.. See it.

Matthew 5:31-32. It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

Revelation 3:10-11. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

May the Lord find you faithful and obedient to His words to the end in Jesus name.
